Hi and welcome to Antergos! I’ll get right to the update your looking for.
About 1 week after my install there was some Arch changes that borked me up a bit, but the Antergos team started fixing links, repos, and updated the installer right away. After that I was able to boot up no problems.
I was still fighting with suspend/resume with Antergos just the same as the 3 other distros I put on there. I followed all the steps( about 2 or 3 different ones for each distro from different time periods) that would supposedly solve this problem. None worked no matter how new or patched the kernel was.
I finally broke down and and applied the John Lewis coreboot/seabios script/flash to my little machine. Everyone has steps on how to do this too. It’s basically a script that checks your hardware, disables software write protect, takes a snapshot of your bios, flashes a modified coreboot/seabios with all the corrects setting and flags just the same as one would do for the initial developer mode entry via chrosh, verifies that it flashed correctly with no errors, and then tell you your good to reboot.
It was not hard at all and I lost all fear of doing it after I came across John’s G+ site and saw that he was extremely active on it helping people work through problems if they had any AND how to go back to the plain old stock Google ChromeOS if they didn’t like real Linux.
After I did that all of my Chromebook specific issues went away and I couldn’t be happier. Antergos snaps to life on boot up looking all pretty and working great. Please note, it also runs perfect with no missing hardware functionality while booted off of a USB live stick too now.
I can only talk about my intel CPU based adventures and how the John Lewis script cleaned up all my issues. Aside from that I have no problems or issues and love my install. I have no idea if there is a ARM port of Antergos so you have to make sure that if you are going to buy a Chromebook make sure it is intel based or you will need to find an ARM port of a distro.
OH, and I was only able to get the 32 bit ISO to load. I have not tried the 64 bit since I did the JL script. I only have 4G or RAM anyway and everything has been working so good that I just haven’t touched it.
Please feel free to ask me anything more specific or simple about this. Maybe best to ask specifics in the proper subforum and just ping/mention my nick so it’s easier to help others too.
I appreciate the in-depth comment! I’ll keep thinking about it and if I do decide to get the Chromebook, I’ll let you know. :)
Hello! I’ve just recently came across Antergos and I’m looking at picking up a Chromebook to test Antergos. I’ve had tons of experience with different distributions but haven’t loved them for a couple reasons. I’m curious for an update on how Antergos is running on your Chromebook? Thanks!
